The modern dedicated assignment of the AC or DC drive units enables simultaneous use of all motors, avoiding contactors and switches. The container can be supplied either by the generator or grid container.

The main components such as the generator control, main switchboard, SCR and VFD units, etc. are Bentec’s own developments which ensure a perfectly aligned and highly reliable system with no interfaces to 3rd party equipment. All components are specially developed and field proved for harsh drilling environmental conditions. A special backup air conditioning system, developed by Bentec, ensures interruption-free operation in any environmental condition on earth.

On request, a remote access client can be installed in the Power Control Room. In case of failure, a Bentec service technician can log into the system and rectify the problem, wherever the operation is based in the world, without any need for travelling time.

the infoDRILL, Anti Collision System , the Soft Tor que Rotar y System , and many more offers a perfectly aligned solution
for controlling and indicating all of the parameters on a drilling rig.

Our Generator Power Management System in combination with our regenerative drawwork braking control will assure the
best energy consumption in class for the safest and most economic operation of the rig.

conceivable environment on earth. This assures an absolutely safe, reliable and service-friendly product that is perfectly
